Re: AGR steering box - worth it?
Most Jeep related aftermarket products I've see are basically good products. They're engineered well and will do the task asked of them. I do question the vaue of the upgrade, but that's a personal choice. The most common point of failure in aftermarket products is the quality of the installation. If the installer did not do the job right, step by step, with understanding of each step, then the install is marginal and the product becomes marginal. I'm a kinda guy that opens the box, throws away the instructions, installs the product and then when something goes wrong cuss becauss the garbage man just hauled off the instructions. Most oten it's purely my fault the installation goes awry and the product fails a short time in the future. It's hard to blame myself for my own failues, but it's the truth.
It's possible that AGR screwed up the box, it happens and that's why they have a warranty period.
What's your friends story... is it possible that he did he screw up the install, or did someone else? It's not hard to do... but taking the blame can be very hard.
AGR does have a good reputation in the marketplace.
